p.2 The Harbor - The ice still lingers in large broken masses in our harbor. Navigation for steamboats is but little impeded, however. The Pierrepont returned from Cape Vincent on Monday night with a large cargo, part for transhipment by railway, and part for Kingston. She again left yesterday, and late last night came in with a large cargo of sugar on Kingston account. The steamer Huron left on Tuesday morning without cargo for Toronto and Hamilton. The propeller Colonist sailed last night for western waters, with a cargo of iron. The propeller Nicolet leaves today for her station in Georgian Bay. Other steamers and sailing vessels are preparing to leave. Calvin's steamtugs have crossed from their winter quarters at Garden Island to tow the vessels out from the wharves, etc. The American channel is almost quite clear of ice. Two American propellers have entered the lake from Ogdensburg, via this channel, and it is said the steamer Boston passed up by the same course yesterday from Brockville for western ports.
